Fair Attendance at Meeting of Pull

Apparently the business men of
Chandler got off right when they or-
ganized our Hfcll Together Club. Al-
ready much good work has been done
and the prospects are that the club
will be the means of untold good to
■the city and surrounding territory.
Thirty-one members were present
at the meeting held at the court
house last Friday night. Every one
present was a booster.
Reports from the 'General Wel-
fare, Good Roads, Farm Interests and
Local Markets departments were
read and each report demonstrated
the fact that the members of these
departments are in earnest and mean
Numerous short talks were had
from those present, perhaps the most
interesting was that of D. R, Owens.
Mr. Owens had but just returned

It was the sense of the meeting
that the business men and property
owners of Chandler devote one night
each week to club work, by attend-
ing the meetings and joining in the
endeavo/to ‘‘pull together.” To this
end it is urged that every member be
present at the meeting *t the court
house tonight and to bring along a

THE CLEAN UP CRUSADE.
As a result of the proclamation by |
the mayor and the interest stirred j
up by the News-Publicist, aided by
the ministers, teachers and school j
children, Chandler is being cleaned j
from center to circumference. Had j
the city been able to secure teams |
when wanted, the work of hauling
off the many piles of refuse would
have been completed by this time. 1
However, this matter is being look-
ed after by Mayor Oleson and teams
will be secured as fast as' they are
Other Towns Interested
During the past week the News-
Publicist has received letters from
many towns asking for plans of our
clean-up crusade and for copies of
the pamphlet, ‘ Making Over May-
bridge,” All writers compliment us
upon our evident spirit of city pride.
Among those who have written
are Hugh J. Cooper, commissioner of

A LETTER WHICH SPEAKS FOR
ITSELF—MORE ABOUT CLEAN-
ING UP CHANDLER.
Guthrie, Okla., April 26, 1913.
Captain L. B. Nichols, Chandler, Okla.
My Dear Captain:
I am just in receipt of the News-
Publicist for April 25, 1913 and
therein on the front page greets me
the “Clean-up Proclamation” of May-
or Oleson of your city. I am delight-
edfto know that you are making an
effort to better the sanitary condi-
tion of your good little city. I regret
that this was not done long ago but
it is never too late to do good and
as “cleanliness is next to Godliness”
you have hit the “bull.”
As chief sanitary officer I have had
a lot to contend wjth in times past
when the State Militia was camped in
Chandler but last year it was the
worst. It seemed impossible to get
your people interested in sanitation,
it meant more to them than it did
us but we failed to get results.
You would have been the point
today for the War Departments mob
ilization scheme had it not been for
the unsanitary condition of your
streets and alleys and barns and pig
pens. Your out-houses and cess pools
were fearful. Now in your clean-up
campaign If you will advocate that
no hogs be allowed within the city
limits, that all vaults be water tight
and fly proof, that stable manure be
spread out and allowed to dry, or
placed in a large box and oiled with
crude oil and a lid kept on it till it
is hauled away. Build a small in-
clnearator on the back of each lot
and burn the rubbish and tin cans,
carting the cans away after they
have been subjected to long and in-
tense heat thus destroying any food
left in same that would attract a fly.
Put plenty of lime In vaults and foul
places. Let the sunshine in on the
barn lots and hack yards. Sunshine
is Nature’s great dlsenfectant. Clean
out your hen-houses and bury the
droppings deep under your garden
and lawns. KEEP THE WEEDS

shrub where It will add beauty to

SOME FAULTS IN ItOAD MAKING.
(By E B. House, Colorado Agricul-
Mr. Editor:—It has been said that
a good road consists of a tight roof
and a dry cellar, and this is true la
every particular. No road can be
lasting that absorbs water to any ap-
preciable extent. No road can be last-
ing that has a subsoil sufficiently wet
to keep the earth moist and spongy;
these roads will always be rough and
rutty, and no amount of surface work
can remedy the condition.
When new earth 1s placed on the
road, the grinding action of the
wheel and the pounding action of
hoofs compact the earth, break up
its texture, it becomes puddled and
then drying forms a hard dense ma-
terial practically impervious to mois-
ture. If the surface of the road is
given the correct shape, the water
i will drain to the side and away from
the road rather than be absorbed by
it. In this way an earth road can
be made with a tight roof. If water
exists in the subsoil and the water
table is sufficiently close to the sur-
face to cause the earth to be con-
tinually damp there is only one rem-
edy and that is to drain this land.
Whenever there occurs a bad piece
of road, 9 chances out of 10, it is
because the side drainage is not tak-
en care of properly. It is allowed
to run down the side ditches par-
allel to the road until it comes t.qjfc*
low spot and there it collects until
the whole road surface is flooded.
The remedy is obvious. As much care
should be taken in the survey of the
side ditches to relieve them of water
as in giving a road the proper crown.

years of age, upon complaint made
